Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

  • How are willpower and habits related and how can you use one to take advantage of the other?
  • Why is willpower like a battery and what can you do to make sure you use that energy as effectively as possible?
  • Why do so many people fail at accomplishing their New Years Resolutions within the first week and what can you do to avoid that fate?
  • What do many of us do to set ourselves up for failure from the start?
  • What are the two support systems of willpower and how can you ensure they’re working for you rather than against you?
  • What role does self-compassion play in the successful development of habits and how can you start cultivating it today?
  • What is the optimal number of habits to focus on at one time and how long does it take for each habit to become routine?
  • How often should you practice a new habit in order to solidify it?
  • What time of the day is best for building new habits?
  • What is the one common theme we hear from the majority of our guests when it comes to how they achieved their success?
  • Why is tracking your progress integral in developing new habits?
  • What can you do to outsource your self-awareness and reduce the finite willpower you have to use?

The most energy efficient way to go through your day is when the day consists of established routines. In this case, energy is also equivalent to willpower, and the more changes you make to your daily routine, the more willpower it requires.

Therefore, the most effective way to start breaking old habits and building new ones is to start small. Understand the routines you use now, and implement one small change based on a habit you want to break or form. Then utilize the tools AJ and Johnny give you to ensure your success.
